PUBLISHED: 11:10 09 December 2011
Bromley's Christmas celebrations will feature on one of the most iconic children's shows of all time.
The BBC’s flagship Blue Peter programme is showing footage of the Christmas parade through the High Street, the lights switch on and presenter Barney Harwood’s first performance in the pantomime on Monday’s episode at 4.30pm. Viewers will also see a repeat of the fireworks display that lit up the skyline above Market Square two weeks ago.
Blue Peter star Barney said: “This is my first visit to Bromley and it reminds me of home with such friendly people. The fantastic audiences here have been another character in the show.
“I’m looking forward to spending more time seeing what Bromley has to offer and doing some of my Christmas shopping in the town centre.”
Council leader Stephen Carr added: “The traditional pantomime is one of many things that Bromley has to offer this festive season. Our decorations, lights, events, markets and free parking offer make the town centre an enticing place for residents and shoppers this Christmas.
“Don’t forget to come along to our interactive nativity scene in the town centre next Thursday evening and see the story of Christmas brought to life.”
